Are you or a loved one interested in a YogAutism™ session?
Our trained professionals are here to help! All facilitators have extensive training in yoga practices and have long histories of supporting individuals with autism and/or other neurophysiological differences. Each are vetted to ensure sensitivity, loving kindness, and above all else, ability to provide a truly beneficial experience.
What to expect:
The primary focus of each session is the YogAutism™ "5 part recipe". Typical sessions are hands-on but touch-free modifications are always available.
Grounding Typically done as a foot massage by oneself or by the facilitator, with or without supportive materials (e.g. tennis balls, golf balls, massage tools).
Psoas wake-up Waking up this muscle allows the connection between the psoas and the diaphragm be released.
Twist Helps quiet the nervous system and unlock the diaphragm.
Shoulder Reset and Chest Opening Helps unlock and open the chest to allow for deeper breathing.
Facilitated breathing Support by another or through exercises to help teach and practice breathing that helps regulate the sensory system and establish calm in the body
Our trained professionals understand bodily limitations and capabilities change and therefore factor that in when designing the session for that day. Therefore, the practice sequence can, and will, be modified and adapted for the student's needs on any given day. The facilitator will arrive at your home, or other agreed upon location, and will first get to know the student before performing the YogAutism™ session. Sessions usually take 45 minutes to an hour and support people are encouraged to participate so they can perform the recipe between sessions. Sessions are organized by our administrator and can be held on a reoccurring scheduled basis or otherwise.
